In the age of Google, when info is so easy to verify, you'd think jobseekers would avoid buying fake credentials from degree and diploma mills. It would also be a pretty bad idea to post your fake credentials online, or to provide them to the press.
Unfortunately, thousands of people still choose this risky shortcut, as reported by The Star:
One "university" which wasn't listed in the Sunday Star story is Washington International University, which is also a well-known diploma mill.
See the Oregon Office of Degree Authorization website, where WIU is clearly listed as a degree mill:
WIU is also listed on the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board's page of "Institutions Whose Degrees are Illegal to Use in Texas":
You'll also get an idea of other "colleges" to avoid by browsing the above links. Obtaining a real degree takes time, effort, and commitment. Don't let your company hire anyone with one of these "degrees," and if you have a colleague with one of these credentials, you should report them.
